The pattern envelope is missing pattern piece K. The remaining 10 pattern pieces and the instructions are in the envelope. Four pieces are uncut, 6 pieces are cut. Sleeve piece M has a tiny tear on one edge; piece H also has a lengthy tear about 3-4 inches along one edge. The remaining pattern pieces are in good shape.
The pattern envelope itself is in good condition aside from tiny tears around the flap edge, discoloration due to age, and tears around the bottom edge.
